Graham Bellinger Solo
Graham sings and plays folk-based music on guitars of every variety, mandolin, mandocello, harmonica, melodeon and banjo.
His repertoire ranges from American blues, ragtime and country music to British traditional songs and material by modern songwriters, including himself. Each and every song is presented with the warmth, humour and commitment it deserves so that all types of audiences can enjoy them.
His solo work now includes workshops for clubs and festivals on the history and performance of the blues and Americana and on guitar styles and techniques. He also sings popular songs for residents and staff at hospices and residential homes.
